Tell It Bill Cosby, Tell It!
On Monday night at a Constitution Hall event in Washington, in front of Kweisi Mfume and other self proclaimed “black leaders,” Bill Cosby laid down the truth just like he was Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell. Here’s what Cosby had to say….
“Cosby said, according to Leiby: “Ladies and gentlemen, the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids – $500 sneakers for what? And won’t spend $200 for ‘Hooked on Phonics.’
He added: “They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English. I can’t even talk the way these people talk: ‘Why you ain’t,’ ‘Where you is’ … And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. … Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. … You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth!”
The Post said Cosby also targeted imprisoned blacks.
“These are not political criminals,” he said. “These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake and then we run out and we are outraged, [saying] ‘The cops shouldn’t have shot him.’ What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?”
Now if Bill Cosby would have generalized his comments and made them to a group of white people, it wouldn’t have even been a story. That’s because saying that poor people need to spend money wisely, that you need to learn to speak properly if you want to succeed, and that criminals who get shot while they’re breaking the law don’t deserve a lot of sympathy is just plain old common sense. That’s why the reported reaction to Cosby’s remarks was “astonishment, laughter and applause.”
But the article also notes that,
“When Cosby finally concluded, Leiby said, Mfume, Howard University President H. Patrick Swygert and NAACP legal defense fund head Theodore Shaw came to the podium looking “stone-faced.”
Kweisi Mfume, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton are despicable race warlords who make their living, a very good living I might add, ginning up racial grievances & telling people their own poor choices aren’t their fault. That’s why they were “stone faced,” because if everybody thought the same way that Bill Cosby did, the race hustling poverty pimps would be out of business. I can’t speak for anybody else, but that would suit me just fine.
